Treasury Department Issues Final Regulations for QLACs

Books & GavelFinal regulations for qualified longevity annuity contracts (QLACs) have been issued by the Treasury Department. The final regs expand access to QLACs for those that wish to include them in their retirement plan. The regulations allow individuals who accidentally exceed limits to correct the error. The final regs also create a “return of premium” option, which allows for previously paid but uncollected funds to go back to the account when the account holder dies.
